Should be several in that $$ range in leather or textile [nylon] [Cortech],etc I used a set of 35 liter Cortech on a Kawasaki Drifter for awhile & they worked fine. Not water-proof ,..but resistant .

Hard bags may be another story...with mounts and all. If you can 'fab' your own ? that opens things up. A friend just sold a set of Honda-line Valkyrie bags...good quality & capacity. again if a person could fab his own mount ? they would {IMO} look good on just about any motorcycle.

ridebikegear.com has hard bags for cheap not sure of the quality, vikingbags.com has decent quality bags.

Default bags

Yeah i was looking at those viking bags, some of the reviews arn't the greatest but as long as they will last a couple year i wouldn't mind paying 200 for them. Anyone have any experience with viking bags? Also which bags on the ridebikegear.com will fit my 8-ball?

These will be a little over budget, but convenient, well built, and made in USA.

Half Crazy, I'm liking the look of those bags and the mounting system! Would you happen to have any photos of just the mounting frames, directly from the side and from astern? Are yours the standard size or the large size?

Cheers
